Re SEN 2839, Martin Dilly: I was a time keeper for the British Team and the US Power Team at the 1961 World Champs at Leutkirch, Germany. I know that Herb Kothe was the Team Manager for the US Team and I believe that Pete Sotich was the Assistant Team Manager.

Connie memorial note

From: Dallas Parker
Hi Roger,
I heard about Connie P passing, and wanted to write a short memorial….

I remember when I was a kid on the flying field.  One day, everything was normal, untill I got stung by a bee on my neck.  I didn’t realize  it at first but I was having a semi bad allergic reaction.  When Connie happened to come by, she knew exactly what to do.  Thankfully she had an extra EpiPen, and used it to halt the large swelling.  She then waited and observed me for a while, until everything was all better.  It was such a major blessing that she was there that day.  I will miss her, and pray that she is in a better place.
